The Giant Clicking Off Sound

Katie Couric told USA Today that people find the news too depressing. Her solution: news broadcasts should be more "solution-oriented."

Regarding that remark, a blogger at KnoxViews writes:

"Is that what the evening news needs? Does this country, or any country for that matter, need talking heads on television providing "solutions"? Isn't what is really needed is for television news anchors and newspaper reporters to just report the news?"

That is absolutely right, and the failure of news organizations to see it is one of the reasons that people who really are interested in the news ignore them.

Update: The Anchoress has more here.
